Love has no boundaries. Right?

Set in the not-too-distant future, the film centers on Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix) who develops a relationship with an intelligent computer operating system (OS) with a female voice and personality called Samantha (voice of Scarlett Johansson).

If you're looking for a movie that will make you feel and think at the same time, this is it. Her is without a doubt beautiful film in every single way. And don't be afraid the film is too sci-fi or unbelievable because that's not the case. Great original script with quirky cyber unique story about unconventional love, very good performances, direction and score. It's an interesting actual topic, thought provoking, you get involved and connect with characters. Overall good experience and must see film. 4/5

Interesting fact about shooting Her: Even though we only hear Scarlett's voice, she acted all the scenes with Joaquin physically. That's the reason why she sounds so believable and like she's actually there.
